Welcome to Andy Clark DVM, MBA
I am an Advisor to Equine Veterinary Businesses. My focus is to bring clarity to the business of Equine Practice.
Through an innovative virtual advisory program, I provide business coaching, solutions, and strategies. I have owned a single-doctor practice out of a garage as well as a regional referral hospital.
Two decades into my successful (financially and quality of life) career as an Equine Practitioner I had a nearly fatal injury while injecting a sacroiliac joint on a kind little Jumper named Joey. I emerged from rehab less abled than I was before.
My passion had always been working as an Equine Practitioner. In the blink of an eye, that ship had sailed. I needed a new way to make a living, hopefully near Equine Practice. I went back to school for an MBA with an entrepreneurship focus. Combining 20 years of medium to high end Equine Practice with my MBA training, I upskilled to become Andrew R Clark, DVM, MBA, LLC.

Equine Veterinary Practice is at an inflection point. Many practices are seeking advice on complicated issues:
I can help you navigate through these issues and more.
In a consulting/advisory role, I have served as:
S - Success
I have had success owning, managing, and practicing in a regional referral hospital, Pioneer Equine Hospital and a one doctor ambulatory practice, Pioneer Equine Veterinary Services.
I have had success Consulting and Advising hundreds of Equine Practices from single doctor practices to a 60 doctor practice through growth, adversity, financial crash, recession and pandemic.
K – Knowledge
I have a broad foundation of knowledge spanning Veterinary Medicine and Business Administration.
E – Experience
Applying that knowledge and remaining a life long learner has given me a base of experience upon which I and my clients can rely.
W – Wisdom
Wisdom is the net result of knowledge and experience as long as you maintain focus on clarity and improvement every step of the way.
Numbers aren’t everything, but I believe that they tell a story. Here are a few numbers that tell my story. I have been an advisor to many. From colleges to practices, services to products, I have been an advisor for all these things. What are the things you need my knowledge, experience and wisdom on?
